Covid has given me a lot of time on my hands, and I ended up on that sewer of a forum. Again.
It is, hands down, the laughingstock of the expat community, and mocked by everyone outside of that forums 20-30 active posters.
Moderation is a joke. Overbearing and so plainly biased its actually fascinating to watch. Scott has single handedly made that forum into a toxic pool of brain-dead elderly drunks crying into their beers about trump and through Scotts severe moderation practices, anyone to the right of Stalin and is outspoken, eventually gets run off of the forum. What happens then is the inmates run the asylum reporting posts and getting people suspended. Add to that, the people moderating are just as biased.
The whole place is a joke. Across most of the forum you cant even make your own threads, you can only comment on what the forum admin decides should be discussed, and this is highly annoying, especially in the news sections.
Best to be avoided like the plague, because it is definitely not a community, nor is it a place where one should invest any of their time.
If you need visa info, ubonjoe is reliable and if you need DIY/electrical info, Crossy is solid. Thats about the extent of the forums usefulness and even that is stretching it.
And dont even get me started on the stupid ads all over the site. *** they can barely keep the site running.
Just a horrible place all together and I guarantee youll feel annoyed after just a simple visit and reading the comments.
User's recommendation: Avoid like the plague, and join Twitter if you need to interact with people.
Thai Visa Pros: Being reminded of how stupid a segment of the expat community is.
Thai Visa Cons: Scott administration and moderation.
Location: Bangkok, Bangkok
